I welcomed 2011 with alot of enthusiasm because I knew I was going to be able to escape the clutches of this Wisconsin winter and make a trip to Las Vegas, NV!
So, what was going on in Las Vegas in January?? Only one of the biggest hairshows in the nation! Redken’s Symposium is a three day educational show for hair stylists to learn cutting edge techniques and get inspired by the industry’s most acclaimed artists, including Sam Villa, Chris Baran, and Hugo Urias. Over 9,500 people were at Mandalay Bay to catch the action!
I was part of a team of 17 makeup artists who did makeup for about 15 teams of Redken Educators. I traveled from Wisconsin, but our artists were from all over the U.S. I think our makeup team did over 200 models per day…it was crazy busy fun!
We also got treated to a live concert from 2011 Grammy winners, Train! It was an amazing event and I look forward to the next show in 2013!!
Below are some photos courtesy of Redken’s fan page and some I took too!
Thanks Redken for the amazing opportunities. I will see you at America’s Beauty Show for another inspirational event.
